"Sticky" still doesn't have a home, but she's closer to getting justice for being body-wrapped in duct-tape and abandoned last week.
Saturday evening, following a tip, Pennsylvania SPCA law enforcement officers arrested James Davis, 19, of the 2100 block of 22d Street in North Philadelphia, according to the Pennsylvania SPCA.
If convicted, Davis faces up to two years in prison and a fine of at least $1,000, the PSPCA said.
Contrary to other reports, Davis did not turn himself in, said George Bengal, the nonprofit's director of law enforcement.
Davis admitted to impulsively taping up the cat after seeing it in the yard of the home where he lives with his parents, Bengal said.
Davis left the cat in his yard for a couple of hours, then, because the animal kept screaming, tossed it into a neighbor's yard, where at least 12 hours passed before she was noticed and authorities were contacted, Bengal said. [Source]
Duct-tape though? Yeah, I don't get that one either. Looking at him (above), I don't think he does either.
